need a web-based solution to bypass corporate proxy


Hi, all.

Got a very restrictive proxy at work, blocks everything.

Have a linux box at home.

I CAN setup something like corkscrew but I was wondering if there's a solution similar to anonymizer.com. So I can do this:

http://homeIP.com/cgi-bin/proxy.pl?target=digg.com

and have it fetch digg.com, and rewrite all of the links to an address similar to the above. So that all traffic appears to come from my PC at home.

Thank you.

How about not breaking your employers rules and just wait til you get home. No one here should help you bend the rules that are laid upon you by your employer. Honestly, don't like their rules, then find a new job.

I've reported to have this thread closed, if you don't like our rules or this judgement, take it up with the administrator or a moderator.

what a silly thing to say.

I don't like the current government either. According to you, I should do what, exactly? Move to Canada? I don't like the fact that my car doesn't get 70mpg. Should I now ride a horse to work? I mean, it is possible... Perhaps in your world people only participate in activities they like. In my world (real) that's not always possible.

Stop being a morality police.

Stop being a fool. Read your Terms and Conditions (or whatever they are called at your place of work). Every one of my Ts and Cs have all said that this sort of thing - bypassing security - is a bad thing and a sackable offence. And if it isn't at your place, it is elsewhere and we don't help people to do this at LQ.

And re the "morality police" thing, check the title beneath Trickykid's name, duh.

Don't be sassy.

Why are you debating the legality or morality of a question? It was a TECHNICAL question. This isn't a forum to hash out people's competing moral outlooks. It's a place where people ask TECHNICAL questions about LINUX and receive answers (again, TECHNICAL) on how to accomplish a given task using Linux.

You & your friend completely miss the point.

If at a gun forum somebody asks on a good gun to go deer hunting with, do you jump in screaming, "NO! YOU CAN'T shoot Bambi!!! That's immoral!!"

At an auto forum, do you repeatedly barge in and yell "NO! Stop asking questions about engines -- you're polluting the environment!! You should bike to work!"

And so on? I mean, is that what you do? If so, fine. If not, then what's with the dichotomy, mate?

If one of the moderators says that LQ.org is not to be used as a hacker's forum, then it's not. By the way, I've worked in a place where someone was sacked for hacking around in the system without permission. It's a very sobering process.

Who wants to browse Digg anyway?

It's full of youtube links and 12 year olds.

maybe if you kindly talk to your employers, you could work something out?

if you were trying to bypass my proxies to look at goat porn on youtube, i'd want you fired...
